Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 101 starts out with a little discussion of Thanksgiving, then they delve into the TV spots for The Last Jedi, all fourteen of them. They also touch on the international TV spots, the new magazine covers and articles, and the Disney park updates. Then it’s the main discussion – Ric Ollie. They talk about the other movies Ralph Brown (the actor who played Ric) has been in, they go over every line of dialog by Ric Ollie from The Phantom Menace, and they wrap up with listener feedback. I have to admit, I really like the character focused episodes as they are a lot of fun.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 56 minutes, Rating: Fun

Brews and Blasters: Episode 145 kicks off with their recap of Rhode Island Comic Con. They talk about meeting Dolph Lundgren, the Blood Sport guy, Steve Blum, Newbacca, Andy Serkis, and Evil Lyn. Afterwards they talk news and get into some speculation on the Rian Johnson Star Wars trilogy. Fun episode.

Podcast Network: RetroZapRuntime: 1 hour 23 minutes, Rating: Fun

DorkLair: Episode 15 covers the new S.H. Figuarts figures that have been revealed, Vader and Luke, plus some more tips on where to get the figures and perhaps who to stay away from. Then they review the phase two Clone trooper.
